Dont give up Truckers - we are with you in action and in spirit.
"Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in the grey twilight that knows not victory nor defeat."-Theodore Roosevelt

News About Truckers United

Maybe it's time to change jobs - hmmm... Salmon Fishermen aren't doing much better. Maybe it's time to just take the old boat out. Sometimes a change of scenery can do you good.

A burden you don't deserve:
It's easy to blame someone else for your trucking troubles. Yet when you're truly honest with yourself, it's clear that blaming someone else will not add the slightest bit of value to your life.
It seems fair and reasonable to expect your problems to be solved by the people who caused them, but stop and think about it. Do you really wish to give those people who caused your problems any additional control over your life and your future?
To move your life in the direction you choose to go, you must be willing to take full responsibility for it. That means moving past what's easy and accepting that things are not always going to be fair.
Who knows that better than a Tractor Trailer driver.
Perhaps life has given you a burden you don't deserve. Instead of seeing that as an excuse to give up, see it as an opportunity to give more.
Though you may not have brought the troubles upon yourself, you can nevertheless make positive use of them. Choose to take full responsibility for your own situation, and you'll begin to see how you can rise from it to a level that's higher than ever before.
Real success does not result from everything going perfectly. Real success comes when you're willing to move forward no matter what may happen.
-- Ralph Marston
